THE FATEFULL JOURNEY

It all started with a dream I had one night. I was walking through someones home, I had never been in this house before. I could vividly see every detail, every picture, every knic knak. I could even smell the unique way that is smelled, kind of like furniture polish and apples. I didn’t touch anything, it never even occured to me at the time.

When I woke up, it was all so real feeling, like I had really been there. I wanted to go back, only next time I wanted to touch something. A few nights had passed before it happened again, this time I found myself in a completely different house. Once again I could see every detail, so this time I decided to touch a wall. The instant my hand felt the rough textured wall paper, I seemed to glide right through it and wound up it yet another house. I spent, what seemed like a long time, wandering around looking at someone elses life, their furniture, lamps, everything, but nothing was familiar to me.

When I awoke, I had only been asleep for a few minutes. This whole thing was becomming disturbing and yet I wanted so badly to do it again and again. So I promised myself the next time I would take something with me, bring it back as proof.

A month passed, and nothing, I didn’t have any experiences, I had pretty much given up. Then unexpectantly, one night I woke up in yet another house and apparently it was Christmas time. I could see and feel all of the decorations. I could smell the cinnamon candy in the dish. All of the sudden I started to feel a pull and I knew I would be leaving soon, so I quickly grabbed a red sequined Christmas ball off the tree. I could feel the pine needles poke me and the hook got stuck for a moment.
I felt like I was waking up from the last journey when I realized I was standing in the middle of a hospital lobby. People were rushing past me. I was standing there in my nightgown, but no one seemed to notice. I looked down and in my hand was the red sequined Christmas ball. I was so excited, I thought to myself….yes!, I did it, now to just take it home. I started to feel the pull again, only this time something was terribly wrong……“Oh my God!, where am I now?”……………….

“We don’t know what happened to her.” " She was shaking and screaming in her sleep, we couldn’t wake her, so we called the ambulance and she was rushed here to the hospital, by the time they arrived she was gone". “why are all these red sequins all over her night gown?” ……………..no one noticed the ball under the bed.
